As its name implies, BRICK Works Café – located in Taipei Arena – is a Lego-themed café. The interesting concept features a spacious dining area and an onsite Lego toy store. We made a special visit to BRICK Works Café and confirmed that it is indeed an ideal playground for Lego fans.
There are plenty of Lego bricks displayed here. You can either admire the splendid exhibits or give into temptation and purchase some. Done with shopping? Now, you can sink your teeth into instagram-worthy food modelled after your favourite childhood toy whilst watching The Lego Movie.
When it comes to premium Japanese beef, most epicureans’ general knowledge are confined to just Wagyu. But did you know that under the category of Wagyu lies several more species?
Many restaurants—outside of Japan—use the word ‘Wagyu’ and ‘Kobe’ interchangeably, which is inherently wrong. Here’s the thing: Every Kobe is Wagyu, but not all Wagyu is Kobe.
Wagyu basically refers to any Japanese cattle breed, whereas Kobe, on the other hand, refers to a specific black Tajima cattle that have been raised under strict conditions in Hyogo Prefecture.
From Matsusaka Beef to Ohmi Beef, here are The 5 Different Types of Premium Japanese Beef Worth Splurging On.

Specialty cocktail bar Employees Only is an exceptionally popular bar in The Big Apple. The nightlife destination has been around for more than a decade—a testimony that it has long since established a special place in the hearts of New Yorkers.
The World’s 50 Best Bars has reconfirmed its status in the competitive industry by ranking it fourth on earth.
Employees Only opened its first international outpost in Singapore’s Amoy Street and the opening sees co-founder Igor Hadzismajlovic, principal bartender Steve Schneider and executive chef Julia Jaksic, moving from The Empire State to our sunny island.
Located in the HDB estate of Jalan Bukit Merah and right across ABC Market is a relatively new kid on the block – an artisanal ice cream parlour called Geometry that boasts freshly handcrafted gelato with zero artificial ingredients and preservatives.
From Dark Chocolate Truffle to Earl Grey Tie Guan Yin, the glorious variety of flavours will make you dizzy with glee.
Choose Me Cafe & Meals—located just a stone’s throw away from Zhongshan Junior High School MRT Station—is an independent speciality dessert cafe in Taipei.
The local cafe’s existence remains largely unknown amongst the expat and foreigner community, but Taiwanese girls are known to flock here just to take selfies with the cartoon-themed cakes.
Haji Lane is home to an eclectic mix of bars, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Graffiti is strewn on the commercial shophouses – located on both ends of the quaint stretch of road – thereby making it a popular attraction amongst locals and tourists alike.
Alas, a speciality craft beer bar has opened in this hipster neighbourhood and it is called Good Luck Beerhouse. The 25-seater bar serves a variety of craft beers; some are locally brewed whilst the others are imported from the United States of America and New Zealand etc.
Open every day till midnight (except Sunday), Good Luck Beerhouse could just be your new hangout spot for Ang Moh Liang Teh!
Fynn’s Café—conveniently located right outside Esplanade MRT Station Exit CC3—is a gorgeous new addition to South Beach Avenue. The beautiful modern all-day dining café reminded us of our good old days in Melbourne. It is worth mentioning staff members are attentive and friendly – a trait that Singapore’s hospitality industry greatly lacks.
We dropped by on a weekday afternoon and Fynn’s Café was packed with customers; expatriates and office dwellers make up the bulk of the crowd. No surprise there, since it is located just a stone’s throw away from the office building and JW Marriott Hotel.
Everyone has had their fair share of fancy afternoon teas on a three-tier cake stand, but have you had brunch from a suitcase? This dining concept is complete new to us too and if you are interested – it is available right in the heart of Taipei city centre.
It is a signature dish at TankQ Cafe & Bar, where avid travellers can take their incurable wanderlust to a whole new epic level.
What are your plans this coming New Year’s Eve? Please do not tell us you are staying at home because you definitely should head out and paint the town red!
Singapore is a vibrant city filled with many exciting parties. Be it a beachside party or a countdown at the glitzy nightclub, there are many options for you.
From the world’s tallest alfresco bar 1-Altitude, one of the world’s best beach clubs Tanjong Beach Club to Pan Pacific Singapore’s Atrium Lounge, here are the 9 Best Places In Singapore To Countdown To 2017.
The average cost of a mille crêpe in Singapore costs S$7.79 and we have based that estimated calculation across 15 different cafes.
Recently, we discovered the cheapest mille crêpe in town and it is being sold at a newly opened dessert parlour called Hasu Confections. A slice of Mille Crêpe here starts from S$6—almost half of what you would pay at popular establishments such as Lady M and Henri Charpentier!
Ann Siang Hill is a highly sought-after district amongst expatriates and we attribute its popularity to the enclave of bars and restaurants housed in colonial shop houses. The dining establishments in this neighbourhood are predominantly western, but a new tenant is shaking things up a little.
Lo and behold, The Coconut Club! Do not let its name fool you – this place is neither a Tiki-themed cocktail bar nor a nightclub. Instead, it is a speciality Nasi Lemak restaurant. The owners have spent two years sourcing for the best coconuts and refining their nasi lemak recipe before opening this eatery.
Over the years, East Coast Road has established itself as a dining destination with its sheer number of food and beverage tenants. Two-week-old Nyam Nyam Chicken & Beer is the newest addition to the bustling stretch and we reckon it makes a perfect dinner spot.
East side dwellers rejoice – you no longer have to travel all the way to Tanjong Pagar to satisfy your Korean food cravings.
